TVLogic Firmware Update Procedure

TVLogic has introduced their latest firmware for the VFM-058W, which displays metadata from the Arri ALEXA camera series. Users must request the firmware from TVLogic; it cannot be downloaded directly from the website.

When requesting the firmware, you must have the serial number of the monitor you want to update. Here is the link to the RMA form to request the firmware: http://tvlogicusa.com/Support/Spt_RMA.asp?L_Code=RMA Updating the firmware on the VFM-058W is done via USB stick, but before loading the files onto the drive, you must format the drive in ExFat. Load the .rbf & .hex file onto the drive and follow the steps below to update the monitor.
